  • Bedrooms: 5
Who would believe that this Grade II Listed former coach house is within walking distance of the town centre? Personally, I think that this is a lovely looking home. Apparently, it once stood in the grounds of a manor house, which unfortunately has long since gone. It has not been possible to pin point the exact age, but suffice to say, it is steeped in history and there are a wealth of original features including both wall and ceiling beams, including exposed roof trusses. The accommodation provided is substantial and subject to planning consent, someone may even decide to convert it into 2 dwellings as it could be virtually split down the middle. It is located on the doorstep to Sainsburys supermarket (so never any excuse to run out of provisions!), yet has large, neatly tended gardens that are screened by trees (including a lovely bluebell wood) and backs onto open countryside. As you can imagine, the wildlife is outstanding, with foxes, badgers, birds and squirrels not being an uncommon sight. Car enthusiasts are sure to appreciate the large triple car garage, as well as ample off-road parking and there are two separate enclosed courtyards. Internally, there is a very adaptable accommodation layout with enough rooms to accommodate a couple of families and there is scope for further modernisation and improvement in order to realise its full potential. The magnificent drawing room/dining room mirrors the size of the triple car garage below and it has exposed beams and original exposed floorboards. Two of the five bedrooms are in the attic. Of course, you can use them for whatever you want and it may even be possible to knock through and create a large master suite, if required.

Apart from the sheer convenience of being able to walk into town, this family home is extremely well place for travel for commuting throughout a wide geographical area, with the A41 linking to the M54, the M6 and Birmingham to the south and Chester to the north. Whitchurch also has its own railway station and there are nearby bus stops. It is extremely well placed for local supermarkets, local shops and schools of all grades.
